This is an English translation of Manuk Abeghyan's doctoral dissertation (Leipzig, 1899).

The Sources and a General Characterization of Armenian Folk Beliefs; 2. Belief in Spirits and Worship of the Dead; 3. Light and Darkness; 4. Belief in Fate; 5. Worship of Water and Plants; 6. Worship of Fire; 7. Worship of Snakes; 8. Stories about Thunderstorms; 9. Spirit of the Wind; 10. Water, Forest, and Mountain Spirits; 11. Spells and Evil Spirits. Zipped HTML files.
